There'd be a cancellation charge, but it's cheaper than a temporary

Any thoughts? Will they blacklist him?

Just a thought for the OP: I've been told by two insurance companies
that there is now a legal requirement for a vehicle to be insured even
if it's parked on your own property and doesn't move from one year's end
to the next.

That is not true.

The owner would still be liable if the vehicle causes damage or injury,
e.g. it catches fire or rolls down a hill and hits something.

If you don't want to insure it, the only alternative is to
SORN it (Statutory Off Road Notification).

SORN is the alternative to taxing a vehicle, not insuring it.
